Q: Is this a balun system?
No, technically the 9879 is a powered, active receiver for a differential balanced line system. The concepts are similar, but there are important differences. 

Q: Can I run IR either way down the IR pathway?
The DuoDrive (Model 1170) and SixDrive (Model AVM-71) do allow IR to pass either way. The AVAtrix would require a Model 1109 IR Injector  or 1111 Control Bridge to send IR signals to the zone end of the Cat 5 run. The AVAtrix is a switcher, so it is expecting to receive IR signals, not send them. The IR input on the AVAtrix controls the AVAtrix switching only, and is not able to send commands to other products at the zone location.  See the Model 1109 manual for details.
